2014 Ends at Susky Brown and Wallace Celebrate
The Classic Racing Series wrapped up its 2014 season at Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday, November 2nd. The winds were whipping all day but the action matched the intensity. 15 racers took to the track and it was Neal Reamer and Steve Cantwell starting the action off with heat race wins. The feature was set, Reamer and Cantwell lead the field to the green to kick off the 20 lap feature event. The 20 car of Steve Cantwell jumped out to the early lead followed by the 73 of Reamer. While the 20 and 73 battled, the 86 of Wes Brown was busy planning his move on the front runners. Meanwhile the defending race winner Matt Wallace was working the 578 towards the front. In the span of one lap Wes Brown picked off the 73 and worked under the 20 car to pick up the lead on lap 7. The wick was turned up for the runner up spot as Brown pulled away by three car lengths. Kevin Palmer, in the Charlie Summers 07 machine, picked up some rhythm and was making the outside line work until he slid high in turn three opening the door for the hard charging 578 of Wallace. The race for second was a toss up for a bunch of laps between the 73 and 20. Wallace joined that fight and pounced on the third position slipping under the 73. All the while Wes Brown was counting the laps and looking for the opportunity to win yet another race as a rookie. And when the checkers flew, it was the 86 of Wes Brown picking up a well deserved win over some strong competition. Cantwell held off Wallace for 2nd, Wallace, Reamer, and Palmer rounded out the top five. Wes Brown was joined in victory lane with friends and family to celebrate his victory in the season finale. Wes also received a 3 foot victory lane sub presented by Rock It Pizza. Rock It Pizza, located right down the street from the speedway, deserves a big thank you for their support this season providing the winner a sub as an additional award at each Susky event.

Series Crowns a Champion. Matt Wallace once again bested the Series and got the job done. In his impressive season racking up 6 feature wins and countless top fives, he is the undisputed 2014 Classic Racing Series Champion. That makes it 4 in a row for the Mt. Airy, Maryland 578 of Wallace, a record that will be extremely tough to beat let alone match. A well deserved championship for a racer who puts it all into his race prep to reap the rewards at the track. Congratulations to Matt Wallace on his 2014 Classic Racing Series Championship.

Lyle Adcock Memorial Race goes to Clemo
The Classic Racing Series took advantage of an awesome night at Trail-Way Speedway on Friday, September 19th. The teams raced remembering a man who unselfishly gave of his time and substance to the sport. Lyle was dedicated to the Series and to his commitment as a board of director and car owner. He was one who thought of others before himself, a trait that is truly becoming a rarity in life today.

The track conditions were perfect, giving the fans some great side by side racing action. Heat race action started with Wallace winning the first heat and Steve Clemo putting the 112 machine in charge of heat #2.

The 21 lap feature event started off with Charlie Weaver out of Tunnellton, WV on the pole with Baltimore's own Steve Clemo in 112 to his right. Clemo jumped to the early lead and would hold onto the top spot for the first 4 circuits. Ron Grove in the 09 car snagged the lead from Clemo on lap 5 and relinquished it on 9 as his machine jumped out from under him. The 112 hungry for his first win, regained the lead only to be stalked by the Woodbridge, Va 73 car. The 73 driven by Neal Reamer was also looking for his first career win and raced the tire tracks of the 112 looking for an opening to make his move. In the end Clemo was able to hold off the hard charging car of Reamer to pick up his first win in the Series. Neal Reamer finished 2nd, Ron Grove recovered with a nice 3rd place finish, Weaver rolled across 4th, and Vincent Crocker picked up his first top 5 finish.

The Series has one more appearance for the 2014 season. They will close out the year on November 1st at Susquehanna Speedway Park.
Wallace Defends Bill Bollinger Memorial Title
Hagerstown Speedway hosted the 3rd annual Bill Bollinger Memorial race on Saturday, July 12th. This race is a special event for the Series as we honor a man who played an instrumental role in the growth of the Series. The tracked showed great promise as Ernie Davis/Rick Jones and crew did an outstanding job preparing the surface for some great racing action. In the heat race action, it was the defending race champ Matt Wallace with the win in heat race #1. Hanover, PA's very own Steve Cantwell took command of heat race #2 to set the stage for the feature finale. 
 
The 20 lap Frederick Scrap feature event got underway at the drop of the green. Wallace and Cantwell powered off turn four with the field in tow. Wallace gained the advantage going into turn one and never looked back. The non-stop green to checker event provided some great racing action as the 112 of Steve Clemo battled with the 73 of Neal Reamer. Clemo and Reamer took their fight for position to the number 2 spot and Cantwell was in the midst of the action. Mean while, Roland Brown, co-point leader, swapped positions with the 34 of Joe Snodgrass through the turns and on the straight aways. The 86 car owned by Wes Brown gave up his seat to Joe Brown, joined in the action and powered his loaner up to a 5th place finish. As the checkers dropped it was all Wallace picking up the win and sole possession of the point lead over roland Brown. Cantwell barely held onto 3rd holding off the hard charging Reamer. Steve Clemo settled into 4th with his 112 racer.
 
In victory lane Wallace was once again joined by Cindy Bollinger and her daughter Aimee. It was nice to see such a big smile on their face as the feature event provided some clean competitive racing action. Wallace told the crowd, "It's a special race to win". John McGarvey jumped into the victory lane crowd to congratulate Wallace on his win and to share some fond memories about Bill Bollinger. It turned out to be an awesome night. 
 
The Series takes a breather and has put out a revised 2014 schedule. Please note an additional Hagerstown date has been added and the postponed Susquehanna race has been posted on the new schedule.

Brown Wins at Path Valley Speedway Park
Roland Brown had scored 4 second place finishes going into Saturday night at Path Valley Speedway Park. With the field set and Brown up eyeing up the front row, he slipped into the second place spot at the drop of the green. Ron Grove out of Wrightsville, Pa earned the pole with his impressive heat race win. Grove set sail in the 09 car and was widening the gap as each lap clicked off. As the 25 lap feature event wore on the ailing back of Grove began to take its toll. At lap 15 the 87 of Brown was able to get to Grove and make the pass. Wes Brown, a newcomer to the Series, was picking up the pointers from the 87 car and was also able to capitalize on the uncomfortable 09 driver. The caution free Signature Property Services event concluded with Roland Brown in victory lane, Brown explained in victory lane, "I was surprised that I was able to catch the 09 car, Ron was running a great race". The win for Brown earned him some valuable points as he chases Wallace in the 578 who finished third. Wes Brown continues to impress his fellow drivers with a solid third place performance.

The Series looks ahead to an action packed weekend. Starting off on Friday night, the Series heads to Trail-Way Speedway and then on Saturday night they return to Hagerstown Speedway.

Make plans to come out and enjoy some quality racing action.
Cantwell Wins the 2014 Opener!
The teams rolled into the "Action Track" Winchester Speedway under clear skies for the 2014 Classic Racing Series season opener. The high banked "paper clip" plays host to many exciting races for the Series and this night would not disappoint. Early heat race action had the #112 of Steve Clemo taking the heat race lead, but Jim Crocker crawled out of retirement and into the #12 and was able to take the first heat win of the year. Steve Cantwell showed early on that his #20 was strong, winning the 2nd heat race. The stage was set for the 20 lap Winchester Scrap main event. Crocker started on the pole, but the #12 machine was no match for the speed of the orange #20 driven by Steve Cantwell making it stick in turn 2. With Cantwell off to an early lead, the #578 of Matt Wallace and the #9 of Brandon Little would split the #12 car of Crocker coming out of turn 4 to take over the chase for the lead. Little had caught Cantwell, but was unable to make a move for the lead. Wallace would soon pull beside Little and clear him entering turn one. The battle for the lead was on! Wallace would try everything he had, but he could not overcome the Hanover, Pennsylvania driver. Steve Cantwell picked up the first win in the series of 2014, and his first win at Winchester Speedway. Cantwell, Wallace, Little, Crocker, and Roland Brown made up the top 5.

Racing notables- Both heat races and the 20 lap feature event went green to checkers, Wes Brown debuted his new 86 car, Steve Cantwell Jr, jumped into action in the 29 car, and Neal Reamer's brand new 73 saw racing action for the first time.
